Kelly did say that she liked him, and gave me some good suggestions to fix his issues. I asked her about the bit mouthing, and she said that she thinks he will grow out of it, as it seems to be a baby behavior, especially with her Thoroughbreds. That makes me feel a little better, as Cruizer is a baby and thinks like a Thoroughbred a lot of the time (he's half TB). She also suggested I try a mullen mouth or Happy Mouth bit, to squander the bit munching. Things to think about..
I also have decided to write monthly goals. (Inspired by Andrea.) Since the month is half over, I'm only going to write three for this month..
Keep Cruizer more relaxed/consistent on the tighter rein, and keep working on it with the looser rein.
Get Cruizer snappier in showmanship. (less casual about walking/trotting off, setting up, etc).
Continue to work on moving the different body parts independently under saddle.
